6:18 pm
freezing. much of south jersey and delaware at or below freezing right now. and we have that moisture moving in. right now, most of it is north and west of the philadelphia area. most of it is coming in the form of sleet and freezing rain. now, again, this is dangerous on untreated surfaces because as this makes contact, it freezes forming at least a thin layer of ice. so, what i've circled here in yellow, you see the pink shading, even white here sleet and freezing rain or even a wintry mix for some of you. through the lehigh valley and parts of the allentown area also northampton county we're seeing some snow possibly. phillips burg some could be missing with sleet. it continues into parts of upper bucks county as well. we are watching this very disclosely. either way temperatures below freezing so this is sticking to the roadways. through parts of berks county we're seeing light snow falling here some could also be mixing with sleet. much of upper montgomery county still seeing areas of sleet or freezing rain. again, the untreated surfaces will be slick across 476 we're
6:19 pm
seeing that as well and this extends down into parts of chester county. across 76 in chester county malvern seeing this now developing. so, sleet or freezing rain is occurring here. this will continue to move towards the philadelphia area. now, through the philadelphia area mostly in parts of new jersey we do have some light areas of precip falling. gloucester township could be seeing some very light precip. sleet or freezing rain. this extends to pennsville. what we saw in new castle counties in delaware that has come to an end. we're watching the moisture move in from the west. most is on the light her side. it doesn't take much to be falling to get that glaze of ice along the roadways and sidewalks. especially on your windshield as you're driving. just be careful if you have to head out tonight. future weather continues with the moisture as we get closer to 9:00. mostly, i think, north and west of philadelphia. that will be the best bet for some slick roadways. again, those untreated roadways. early tomorrow morning, 5:00,
6:20 pm
6:00 in the morning, we could still see this occurring through parts of delaware. maybe extreme south jersey like cape may county. otherwise, i think a majority of the morning commute will be on the dry side. then we go through tomorrow afternoon, we're pretty much dry. wednesday afternoon, we're also going to be dry. then as we go into wednesday night, we start watching an area of snow off to our west. into the day thursday, that could be moving through. so we could see our next round of snow showers and even a mix with some rain as we go into the middle of the day on thursday. for tonight, freezing rain stays in the forecast. even freezing drizzle with that chance of sleet and snow around. kind of a wintery mix. tomorrow icy spots early but otherwise it will be a dry day. breezy and kind of cold. temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s. so, not as cold as today but the wind will make it feel a little colder. wednesday, we're sunny, near 40 degrees. on thursday, the next chance of snow, much colder by the end of the week. highs in the mid-20s.
6:21 pm
